Inspiration Block Class
May 14 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Russ Fagle and Erin DuFrane of New Bohemia district based Mixed Media Magic will lead you through a fun journey of different materials and techniques including paint, pens, collage, stamping and more to create a truly unique and individual piece of mixed media art. This project is focused on using reclaimed wood for a three dimensional message of inspiration. No special skills required! Our focus is demonstration and facilitating while helping YOU create your own piece- using our sample as a guide- instead of just copying what the instructor does. This class will open new artistic doors for you!

Check out the Mixed Media Magic Facebook page for more details!

Bike Swap & Ride
May 16 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Bike Swap & Ride

May 16 marks the end of “Bike to Work Week.” Come celebrate with us at our second annual Bike Swap & Ride!

Bring your bike gears, bikes, seats and more to sell/haggle/swap with others!

There will be an area for people to sell completed bikes that they want to get rid of/upgrade, and bike shops/vendors will be here peddling their wares, too. (Get it? Peddling? It’s a pun!). Individuals are also welcome to set up a table and sell their extra/leftover gear (or, you know… stuff that “has to be out of the garage by the end of the month).

The swap itself will run from 9am-12pm with a ride to Ely and back to follow. Register in advance for the ride to get event freebies. See you there!

Cars & Coffee @ NewBo City Market
Jun 6 @ 8:00 am – 11:00 am

NewBo City Market’s “Cars & Coffee” events are one-of-a-kind. Instead of a traditional car show where you’re required to register in advance (and even pay), we went a much more casual route.

Attendees of Cars & Coffee can register in advance to reserve a parking spot, but it’s not required. Additionally, it’s free. On top of that, anyone who brings a car to the event gets a free cup of coffee from Roasters Coffee House.

The make, model, and year of the cars that are allowed is flexible, but keep in mind that if you bring something that car fanatics wouldn’t consider “up to par” that you could be made fun of.

  • I was there and had an absolutely fantastic lunch: ‘What’s Up Doc’ carrot juice from Get Fresh, and a delicious “Adventure” salad from Greyhound Deli with greens, strawberries, goat cheese, sesame seeds and balsamic vinaigrette. YUM!
